Vermont's farmers market season is just around the corner.
With over 30 markets throughout the state, these weekend events provide residents and visitors a chance to meet local farmers, florists, business owners, artists, and more. A few towns continue their markets throughout Winter, but nothing compares to Summer markets. Many Vermont farmers markets are a community gathering, with live music and outdoor seating.
Farmers markets first started in Vermont in the 1970s. Since 1986, the number of markets has grown from 19 to 64. The Vermont Farmers Market Association (VTFMA), along with the Northeast Organic Farming Association of Vermont, work to organize these community events.
From Burlington to Brattleboro, each market gives you the opportunity to meet and support local farmers.
